Lucille Mickael

Lucille Vivian Reed Mickael, daughter of Charlie & Helen South Reed, was born February 25, 1932 at Van Wert, Iowa.
After graduating from high school, Lucille went to school in Maryville, Missouri to be a school teacher. She taught country school for 3 years at Van Wert and Grand River. On May 25, 1955, Lucille married Kenneth Dale Mickael. They moved to Des Moines and Lucille worked at an insurance company for a short while before starting a family. In the early 1960's, the family moved to Kellerton. After the children started school, Lucille worked at the Grand River school as a Teacher's Aide; after that she started full time as a 4-H Extension Aide. She retired when Kenneth retired from the U.S. Postal Dept. Lucille and Kenneth enjoyed several years together running to Des Moines to visit children and grandchildren.
Lucille is a member of the American Legion Auxiliary, Ladies Aide, Rebekah Lodge, and she was active in the Christian Church where she taught bible school. Lucille was a great homemaker, always fixing some of the best homemade goodies you'll ever eat. She will be dearly missed. After Kenneth's death on October 14, 2007, Lucille's life changed and her children moved her to Des Moines to be closer to them.
Lucille passed away August 12, 2012 at Clearview Home in Mount Ayr. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband; brother Harold Reed; and brother-in-law Harold Mickael.
Those left to mourn her passing include her children Carla, Duane, and Arlan; grandchildren Melissa, Justin, Elisabeth, Stephanie, Trever, Kyle, and Toni; great grandchildren Xzaydriana, Wyatt, Cody, Jayden, Mackenzie, Mason, and Kyren; great great grandchildren Kaeleoniah and Kameron; sister Norma Munyon; brothers Les & Lloyd Reed; many other relatives and friends.
A memorial fund has been established in her name for the family to decide later.

Carla, I am sorry to hear of your mother''s death. I always thought her a very special mother, certainly the only mother I knew who knew to put potato chips in a brown bag then into the oven to revive them.
I am sorry for your loss.

We will miss you so much Aunt Lucy. So many memories of you and Uncle Kenny watching the ''girls" for us on a Sat. night... they loved it. Popcorn and Pepsi. Skating on the pond. Love you much. Rod and Leeanne

Growing up in Kellerton and maintaining minimal contact in the last 50 years but what sticks out about Kenny and Lucille - a classy couple! Kind, Kenny the ever gentleman, and Lucille his best friend. My thoughts are with the families Lucille leaves behind. The wonderful memories will live on for many lifetimes.
